Gone are the days where photos are worth a thousand words. People actually want to see those words, especially on your dating profile. It’s not enough to have six selfies, people want to get to know you. Your interests, star sign, grammar level (no pressure), all come into play on whether or not people will select your profile. On HER, if you write a bio you are 4x more likely to have someone swipe right on your profile, so let’s make you a professional.
- Share your interests, but not the basic ones
Seriously, if we see another “I like to hike, eat food and watch Netflix” we are going to scream. People want to hear what you are passionate about, what catches your attention and an easy conversation starter. This way you can see that they paid attention to what you posted and a common interest to share.
- What are you looking for?
And be clear. If you are here for friends, awesome. If you are in a relationship, but are open, give an example of what that could look like. Transparency is the new sexy and it helps to lessen the amount of digging you have to do.
Trust when we say, emojis help seal the deal. It pulls their attention right to your bio, which then gets them to read your bio. Mission accomplished!
- What is your personality like?
Are you goofy and introverted? Outgoing, but only in specific spaces? Help the person who is checking you out figure out your conversation type. This can be an amazing ice breaker, and help each of you understand what it’s like in their shoes. ENFP all the way!
At the end of the day, you want to give people your voice. Meeting over apps does not allow us to see the awesome personalities people have, like it would if you met in a coffee shop. Bring your profile to life by sharing about you. We know it’s weird sometimes, but it definitely works.
